I got a lip balm order a few weeks back, just in time for my birthday, and I am so incredibly happy with it. *grins*

http://www.saskya.com/lipbalm/ is the site I ordered from (okay, I actually ordered from saskya directly before the site was up...), and OMG! I love this stuff! In particular, I ordered a tube of Peach Clove that I absolutely adore. It's fruity-spicy, not too strong, but not too weak, a nice, soothing consistancy on the lips and not sticky or greasy feeling, and it doesn't *taste* bad (which some do, when they have odd scents). This is so my flavor - if I were to ever design a signature scent, this would be it.

Check out the site, you can mix and match various flavors, and I was super impressed by the speed and service. I also got Sage Honey, which is a wonderful not-too-sweet smell, and clove, and Chai tea, which are exactly as they sound - the chai tea is quite mellow and delicious. She also tucked in Herbal Mint for me, which is as good as brushing teeth for a quick pick-me-up smell, and candy kisses, which is much sweeter (and Jake says he won't kiss me if I wear it, so that will be a daytime gloss while he's at work...).

She's got some new flavors in I want to try, too: watermelon and raspberry lemonade, in particular! I wonder if watermelon would go with clove? Maybe pearberry clove... Mm...

Moonshadows magazine?

Has anyone had recent contact with these guys? Their webpage is http://mnshadows.com I sent them advertising $$ and an ad back in October, and they haven't answered any of my followup emails. Did they even come out with December issue - their webpage doesn't show anything past July of last year. Anyone know anything??
(Edit: they replied this time!)


Just what I need - ANOTHER domain...

But it was too good to pass up: Fantasyartgiftshop.com

It will redirect to the EMG giftshop until I figure out how I want to arrange everything...
enough time

FYI for artists!

I am basically caught up in the submissions queues. :) If you've been waiting to submit to EMG because I've been swamped, that's sweet, but it's a great time to stop doing so! Also, a friendly reminder that the 'Legends of the Sea' calendar submissions and lineart for a kids coloring book come to a close at the end of June! I know more of you have suitable work, and there's no limit to how many you can submit! *nudgenudge*

And, as previously mentioned, cats is the theme for EMG-Zine August. :) http://www.emg-zine.com/guidelines.php
